This year, the traditional flypast by the RAF, after the annual Trooping The Colour parade on Saturday 14th June, was rather larger than usual, with a 20 mile long, 55 aircraft package.
Led by the Battle Of Britain Memorial Flight, with one Lancaster plus two each of Spitfires and Hurricanes.
Unusually, the Red Arrows display team were not involved, but there were formations of 9 x Typhoons and 16 x Tornado GR.4's featured.
The larger display this year is part of the RAF's 90th anniversary commemorations.
